John Grisham, a prolific author whose legal thrillers have sold over 250 million copies world wide. Grisham's net worth is $200 million. Grisham attended Mississippi State University and earned his Juris Doctor degree from the law school in 1981. He then entered a small general practice where he focused on criminal and civil law, and spent much of his time in court proceedings. In 1983 he was elected to the Mississippi House of Representatives and served until 1990. In 1984 Grisham witnessed the testimony of a 12-year-old rape victim, and got his first inspiration to begin writing. In 1987 he finished his first novel, A Time To Kill, which was rejected by many publishers but eventually got picked up by Wynwood Press, who published 5,000 copies in 1988. His second novel The Firm, was published in 1991, and became the 7th bestselling novel of the year. He continued to publish at least one novel per year from then on, and had seven best sellers (1994, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2005). Grisham wrote legal thrillers, many about young attorneys, but in 2001 he began to focus on broader subjects with A Painted House, a novel about the rural south. In the 1990s, Grisham sold a total of 60,742,289 copies of his novels, with Publishers Weekly naming him the "bestselling novelist of the 90s". He briefly returned to the courtroom in 1996, and now maintains the "John Grisham Room," a collection of materials he created throughout his duty as the Mississippi State Representative, and in relation to his career as an author. His most recent novels were The Associate and Ford Country, both released in 2009, and three of his novels are set to be adapted into films in the next two years.
John Ray Grisham, Jr. (born February 8, 1955) is an American lawyer and author, best known for his popular legal thrillers.
John Grisham graduated from Mississippi State University before attending the University of Mississippi School of Law in 1981 and practiced criminal law for about a decade. He also served in the House of Representatives in Mississippi from January 1984 to September 1990. Beginning writing in 1984, he had his first novel A Time To Kill published in June 1989.
As of 2008, his books had sold over 250 million copies worldwide. A Galaxy British Book Awards winner, Grisham is one of only three authors to sell two million copies on a first printing, the others being Tom Clancy and J. K. Rowling.
Grisham's first best seller was The Firm. Released in 1991, it sold more than seven million copies. The book was later adapted into a feature film in 1993, and a TV series in 2012 which "continues the story of attorney Mitchell McDeere and his family 10 years after the events of the film and novel." Eight of his other novels have also been adapted into films: The Chamber, The Client, A Painted House, The Pelican Brief, Skipping Christmas, The Rainmaker, The Runaway Jury, and A Time to Kill. His books have been translated into 29 languages and published worldwide.
John Grisham, the second oldest of five siblings, was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to Wanda Skidmore Grisham and John Grisham. His father worked as a construction worker and a cotton farmer, while his mother was a homemaker. When Grisham was four years old, his family started traveling around the South, until they finally settled in Southaven in DeSoto County, Mississippi. As a child, Grisham wanted to be a baseball player. Despite the fact that Grisham's parents lacked formal education, his mother encouraged her son to read and prepare for college.
He went to the Northwest Mississippi Community College in Senatobia, Mississippi and later attended Delta State University in Cleveland. G
